  • PackRat 1.0 ($25) is a companion program for Backpack -- an online scheduling tool -- that lets users view and edit content offline, uploading to Backpack when a connection is available and no changes are in progress. The software records and synchronizes all changes, requiring Mac OS X 10.4 or later. [Download - 3.3MB]

  • Advanced Link Manager 3.3 ($60) tracks inbound links to websites, identifying their sources and what they contain. Version 3.3 introduces several aids including context help, quick actions, and the Advanced Link Manager Assistant. The software also identifies search engines currently reporting each link. [Download - 14.1MB]

  • ProjectForum 5.3 ($50) is a wiki collaboration program aimed primarily at developers. The software can operate behind a firewall while offering support options such as SSL, version control, and authentication. The latest revision (version 5.3) adds a custom link feature, enabling the use of outside content such as images or "Web 2.0" applications. [Download - 1.83MB]

  • Ishmael 1.3 ($30) combines narration with still images or PDF files to produce a final QuickTime video clip. The update supports creating export sets that serve as groupings of slides with custom movie preferences. Saved recordings use the Apple Core Audio Format (CAF), and users can refresh sources without reloading the Ishmael document. [Download - 2.9MB]

  • PDFtoMusic 1.0 ($40) plays musical scores in PDF files, and supports singing the lyrics or isolating components such as a soprano section. Applets called the Melody and Harmony Assistants allow users to alter a score by removing, transposing, or rearranging what is seen. PDFtoMusic Pro ($200) allows exporting to the MusicXML format. [Download - 10MB]

  • Shades 1.0 ($15) introduces a new pane to the Apple Color Picker, displaying grids of related colors in addition to the standard scales. The program also uses HSB (Hue Saturation Brightness) coordinates, rather than RGB (Red, Green, and Blue). Users can add colors picked through Shades to any software's color palette.
